> Sounds like you've configured php not to display errors in the web browser. That's a good security practice and may even be the default setting these days; you don't want an error message to reveal sensitive information about your server to a public visitor. But if you want to temporarily change that setting and display errors while working on a problem, you can edit your php.ini. Or you could have consulted whatever file you've configured php to log its errors to, or possibly your web server error log file.

Hmm… in php.ini (for php71, which is what’s being used AFAIK — it’s what “which php” shows) —I have:

error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
display_errors = On
display_startup_errors = On
